NBJ 2019 POWER 100: DEALMAKERS

George Tomlin, founder of and CEO of GBT Realty Corp.

George Tomlin is a career real estate developer, but he had his mettle tested like never before during the past year. He persevered, winning Metro Council approval of his plans for a 16-story development near West End Avenue. It took 10 months and rounds of negotiations with neighborhood groups, some of which remain opposed to the project. The project marked Tomlin's truest taste yet of how much more complicated urban development can be versus the big-box retail projects he's known for. Tomlin is quickly getting up to speed: he bough land on Broadway, a gateway to downtown, where he's pitching an office tower. He's now finished two Hillsboro Village developments and has two in the pipeline for Green Hills. And he's not finished yet.
